I was just thinking about upgrading again and just wanted to know if this PSU:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would go well with this video card (in terms of enough power, good price purchase etc..):

http://www.evga.com/products/Specs/GPU.aspx?pn=c46f9673...

That PSU is 49.99 after rebate and that 660 is 199.99 so how do those two fair with one another? I know it definitely meets the 660's wattage requirement but what other aspects have to be observed?

The PC I have at the moment is:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en...

With a 9800GT (BFG), and it's pretty old, can't run some games at all anymore, so I wanted the 660. What do you think guys? I have a pretty high budget for PSU however I'd rather not spend more than 250 for a video card.

Anyway, just let me know what you think and absolutely any advice is appreciated
Thank you!

If you are asking if the PSU is good enough for your system it should be enough to run your entire system, however keep in mind I did a quick skim through the parts and I don't have the wattage off the top of my head. If you are going to get a new gpu for a $250 budget I wouldn't go for the 660 go for a 760 it's $30 over your budget, however it is definitely worth the extra money over the 660
EDIT: Forgot the 760 link here: http://www.rakuten.com/prod/asus-gtx760-dc2oc-2gd5-gefo...

Ouch! Sorry, but that a little too much. Let me clarify, my budget is $200, but my hard cap is at $250. What do you guys think? And thank you for the response!

Yes, should be fine with some overhead left in the PSU, which is good as the Corsair CX is entry level of their PSU lines ;)

Ok, great, thanks a lot for the help guys, I ended up purchasing the

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

with the 600W instead of 500W and it came out to the same price after the mail-in rebate.

Is there possibly a better (nVidia)GPU for around $200 or not? Is the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 my best choice?

Thanks again!

There are some 270Xs under the $200 cap that are a little better overall than the 660s
